now we all reacted to it 2023 Toyota Prius Hybrid It’s finally time to delve into the details of what lies beneath the stunning new design, redesigned body. Announced.

more MPG

The most efficient version of the new Prius is the front-wheel-drive LE, rated at 57 mpg in total. Adding all-wheel drive drops that figure to 54 mpg, while selecting higher XLE and Limited trim levels with larger wheels and tires and additional equipment drops to 52 mpg front-wheel drive and 49 front-wheel drive. downgraded to mpg. All-wheel drive.

These numbers are old modelIt was rated at 56 mpg with the Eco trim combination, 52 mpg with the FWD model combination and 49 mpg with the AWD model combination. In our 75 mph real highway fuel economy test, we achieved 46 mpg for the 2017 Prius FWD and 47 mpg for the 2019 Prius AWD. We are looking forward to testing the new model on this same test to see what it can do.

extra power

The new large-displacement in-line four-cylinder petrol engine is the main reason for the significant increase in power output of the new Prius. The engine itself makes him 150 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque, but the old Prius petrol engine made him 96 hp and he couldn’t even make more than 100 hp. The main electric motor, which acts as a motor generator and powers the front wheels, is also more powerful than before at 111 hp, while the additional rear electric motor powering the rear wheels on AWD models is now 40 hp. rice field.

Total drivetrain output is 194 hp for FF models and 196 hp for AWD models. (plug-in hybrid prius prime is even more powerful with 220 hp, but we don’t yet have full specs for that model.)

Interior and exterior dimensions

If you’ve been wondering if the Prius’ low-slung profile negatively impacts interior space, you may be disappointed or vindicated that the new model carries less passenger and cargo than before. , claims 91 cubic feet of passenger space, up from 93 cubic feet on older models, and only 20 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats raised on the XLE and Limited models. There’s a little more space in the back of the LE, but even that his 24 cubic feet of space is smaller than his 27 cubic feet on the old car. We’ll have to see how many carry-on suitcases will fit in the newer model, but it’s safe to assume that less than six suitcases will fit in an older Prius with the seats raised.

It may surprise you, but the new Prius isn’t aerodynamically better than the old Prius. Toyota claims a drag coefficient of 0.27 compared to his 0.24 on older cars. Dimensionally, it’s 1.1 inches longer, 0.9 inches wider and 1.8 to 2 inches lower than before, depending on trim level. The wheelbase has increased by 2 inches and the rear legroom has increased by 1 inch. But there is less headroom for both front and rear passengers. The Prius isn’t meant for off-road, but those with treacherous roadways will be happy to know that the ground clearance he’s gained 0.5 to 0.7 inches.
